Speed up official end to Korean War, says North

Speed up official end to Korean War, says North

A month after the historic summit between United States president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, the two sides have made slow progress. "Likewise, no Nuclear Tests".

Following Mr. Trump's historic summit with Kim last month, Graham told CBS News that China's goal of driving the USA out of Asia is accomplished if the US withdraws its forces from the region.

Over the past few days, the North's official media have chastised Japan for discriminating against its large ethnic Korean community and played up South Korean reports that protesters in Seoul threw eggs at the Japanese Embassy over Tokyo's alleged attempts to take control over a disputed island that is a cause celebre for both North and South.

Diplomats say the North Koreans have canceled follow-up meetings, demanded more money and failed to maintain basic communications, even as the once-isolated regime's engagements with China and South Korea flourish.

North Korea reportedly believes it has made sufficient concessions - namely its freeze on weapons testing, the destruction of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, and the imminent return of the remains of USA war dead - to warrant the start of talks on a peace treaty.

Trump celebrated the summit with Kim in Singapore and thanked the North Korean leader for taking the "first bold step toward a bright new future for his people".

Other North Korean media like Meari, also urged the South Korean government to "do its part" to end the Korean War, adding that the meeting between both leaders in April would lose its significance if changes are not implemented soon.

"The fact of the matter is that past year, on President Trump's watch, North Korea made significant advances in its ballistic missile technology, achieving what many experts agree is a nuclear-capable operational ICBM", Menendez added.

The Washington Post had reported that Trump was privately frustrated that Kim was slow-walking on giving up his nuclear weapons.

A month ago, the United States administration insisted on the "urgency" of denuclearization, and said it would begin "very quickly".

"Although that's unfortunate, that's the only thing that's going to get the North Koreans to behave responsibly", he said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that he and President Trump remain "upbeat about the prospects of denuclearization of North Korea" and that "progress is happening".

As he did Monday, Trump has publicly professed satisfaction at the pace of negotiations with North Korea, saying last week there was "no rush" in completing talks with Pyongyang because USA and United Nations economic sanctions against North Korea remain in place. "But the relationships are very good", Trump said last week.
